Top to toe, inside out, your body and mind will benefit
Bursting with important nutrients, such as protein and vitamin D, fish is a stellar choice of food to eat.
The NHS recommends that a healthy, balanced diet should include at least two portions of fish each week, as it’s a good source of vitamins, minerals and, depending on the fish, omega-3.
We chatted to UK registered nutritionist MSc (mBANT) May Simpkin, who talked us through exactly what the health benefits are for both body and mind when it comes to consuming different types of fish.
Anxiety is the silent leader in mental illness, our main ‘disruptor of peace’ Out of 40 million people affected, only 37% seek treatment.
This statistic is even higher in men as only 1 in every 10 men report experiencing anxiety and depression, and less than half reported their concerns or sought treatment.
In the 21st century, men, are raised to ‘just deal with stuff and move on’. yet somethings like anxiety can’t be removed by drinking or playing sports, and in most cases there aren’t the opportunity’s to discuss the effects of anxiety.

Workplace is a social media communication tool that connects all members of Elim Sports Church (ESC). It uses familiar Facebook features such as live video, Groups and Chat to bring us all together, making teamwork faster.
Sometimes it can be difficult communicating with everyone at ESC, but Workplace is an efficient way to share information in a variety of ways.
We have created different groups to enable a diverse range of conversations to take place 24/7, from general chat to planning team events.
Groups are diverse and include; Outdoor Pursuits, Social Events, Racket Sports and Mens Health. Members can join as many groups as they wish.
Making announcements and chatting is made simple with integrated live videoing from one-one chats on mobile devices, to online team meetings for our groups.
For example, those interested in 6 aside football to those planning to travel to Lanzarote on our annual away week, can organise group chats through the Workplace live video system.
Text, video, images and GIFs
Workplace also incorporates the latest innovative methods of interactive media, making our communication interesting and engaging. This transforms the way we share devotional material to the way we celebrate ESC members personal events, and anniversaries collectively on-line.

Here are 3 of the stories that are told about why we eat hot cross buns.
What do you think?. . .
1. A 12th-century monk introduced the cross to the bun.The origins of hot cross buns may go back as far as the 12th century. According to the story, an Anglican monk baked the buns and marked them with a cross in honour of Good Friday. Over time they gained popularity, and eventually became a symbol of Easter weekend.
2. Hot cross buns gained popularity in Elizabethan England.Towards the end of the 16th century, Queen Elizabeth I passed a law limiting the sale of sweet buns to funerals, Christmas, and the Friday before Easter. The English were deeply superstitious, believed the buns carried medicinal or magical properties, and were fearful of those powers being abused. Some even believed that buns baked on Good Friday would never go stale.
As a way to get around the law, more and more people began baking these sweet buns at home. Not only did they grow in popularity, but the law became too difficult to enforce and was eventually rescinded.
3. Superstitions about hot cross buns baked on Good Friday.There are also more than a few stories that indicate hot cross buns were baked on Good Friday for superstitious reasons. One tale states that buns baked on this day and hung from the rafters of a home would ward off evil spirits in the coming year. Another talks of these buns protecting sailors from shipwreck, while off at sea. Yet another version mentions that sharing the bun with a loved one guarantees friendship in the coming year.
I eat them because they are an excellent snack, especially when hot.
